Mokusho's time off and guidance

Mokusho's time off and guidance

These days, feeling quite exhausted I took a little break to take care of myself. When I asked my inner guidance for a sign of what I needed to focus on the most today, here is what life answered! Guidance comes in unexpected and surprising ways. Messages are all over the little things of daily life as well! Let’s keep are eyes and heart always opened for these gifts 😍❤️

One of Mokusho’s favorite books

One of Mokusho’s favorite books

One of Mokusho’s purpose for creating physical greeting cards and bookmarks is to encourage a grounded physical link with objects. Writing your own words, feeling the texture of the paper, offering it, sharing it, framing it if you wish and use the bookmark in the act reading physical books. An experience of the senses, a sensual return to the liveliness of the incarnated experience 🌍💙 One of Mokusho’s favorite books: J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy “The Lord of the Rings”

Daily magic: My mother's passing last February has prompt me to seize the day and the magic of life. The beauty of these calla lilies that accompanied her ceremony, remind me every day to savor that pure grace that is our life when we choose to focus on its richness!

Daily magic: After 6 months of being denied the basic right to enter and sit in a café, restaurant or cinema, because of the imposed vaccine passport, many of us are finally aloud to savor the simple joys of sipping a coffee or eating a meal in the company of others!

Daily magic: I miss those outside markets, the ones that are drenched in sunlight and exhale fruity and spicy fragrances. I miss the colors and the tastes. May spring fill our eyes with joy again and make us savor the richness of all that is alive!

The perfect day, Bruges, 2014 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Bruges, Belgium, 2014

Daily magic: The pleasure of being totally incognito. Nobody knows my name, my life. The pleasure of knowing that today I'm going to visit one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, that I will walk around with a camera that will be filled with beauty and unique treasures that I don't know anything about yet. Everything is possible! Happiness enters my heart and I tell myself that I'm the luckiest person in the world. The excitement of the first morning in a city to discover is...

Daily magic: Creation in all its forms, may it be a beautiful tasty meal, a drawing, a collage, can all be a source of solace in times of challenges. Art and creativity raise our vibration by being in a state of presence, stillness and inner plenitude. Does this help you as well when you have worries?

The little things, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Daily magic: Sometimes we put a lot of pressure on ourselves in "doing". It's in the little things, that life reminds us of "being", of staying connected to our soul and guidance. This little bird offered me that reminder today... Are you also in need of more contemplation and mindfulness in your life, as I certainly am?

Void, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Void, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Daily magic: Some days, we fail to see what usually animates us with life. Sometimes we feel a void inside. Nothing wrong with that, void is a crucible, a place of transformation for new things to bloom. The universe contains lots of it. Patience and acceptance are encouraged...

Daily magic: I love those creators that use their direct environment to create harmony and beauty when they can, in any context. This person used ice plates from the frozen river to create this improvised sculpture! Any examples of things you create from simple things to harmonize your environment?

Light on blue, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Light on blue, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Daily magic: I've always been very attracted to abstract motifs and ceramics, mostly the blue and white one. When the light hits it, for me it becomes magic! It is one of those other media I wish to explore in the future. Do you have a favourite type of ceramics or pottery? Or from a particular ancient or modern culture?

New friend, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

At the heart of it all, Mokusho, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, Montreal, 2022

Daily magic: When I take my daily walk I pass by this poor tree that has been burnt for fun by unconscious beings. Everyday I put my right hand on the heart-shaped burn, and I send him all my love. Isn't what we are all here to be and do? Incarnate benevolence in all the little things of life?

Daily magic: The wolf has been for a while my totem animal. Family and friends have offered me this protective figure in the form of soft and comforting wolves that protect my sleep! Any of you have totem animals?

Do you also use crystals? What are your favourites? to me. I work with them on a daily basis to help raise my own and other people's vibrations. My most favourite are the labradorite, larimar and lapis lazuli jewels in the forefront. Do you also use crystals? What are your favorites?

The magic travels, Montreal, 2022 © Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard, 2022

Daily magic: Between Nataru and the Telosii of Agartha, my heart and soul travel home again. Infinite gratitude to Elena Danaan! After "A gift from the stars" and "We will never let you down", which changed my life forever, I savour the saga of Shandora that started with "Le chemin d'Émeraude".

Daily magic: Over a cup of delicious and amber colored samuraï rooïbos tea, I create the exploratory plans of the small countryside habitat that will manifest when time is good! A life animated by the soul's projects, inevitably blooms with inner joy and high vibrations!
